Today we celebrated a milestone: our 200th episode!
We shared our favorite memories over the past ~120 hours of #content, discussed some of our Hopes and Dreams for the future of the show, and we did it all under the shroud of a global pandemic that threatens our way of life!
We closed with some kind (?) words of congratulations on 200 episodes from friends of the show.
Thanks to everyone who has listened over the years. We love you and we love Charlotte.
We were joined by Tony of the Map Shop to learn more about this Charlotte landmark, what its future holds and to take a 5th grade geography quiz. We also learned Charlotte’s history with the Freedom Riders and were supported (as always) by Supportive Guy.
This week the boys were joined by Angel Johnston and Adria Focht from the Charlotte Museum of History and learned all about the museum’s mission and our favorite Charlotte history highlights.
Our history segment this week closed out our series of the Fusion movement with The Wilmington White Supremacist Insurrection of 1898
As always we would be #humbled and #flattered by your vote for Charlotte Magazine’s BOB awards. Link is here.
This week we were joined by Dalton and Miriam Espaillat from Sabor to hear their incredible story of building a Charlotte restaurant empire and their exciting workforce development work. We also discuss the white supremacist backlash to the Fusion movement in 1898.

We sat down and discussed what we’re looking forward to this spring, learned more Fusion Politics history and embarrassed our producer, Nata, quite a bit.
